Earlier this week, the indie-centric recording site Daytrotter posted their session with local singer-songwriter Jeremy Messersmith, who has been hard at work finishing up his new album this winter (which is due out this sprint). Head to the Daytrotter site to stream the four songs that Jeremy recorded, which are posted alongside a lovely and quite poignant story by one of the studio workers of what it was like to meet Messersmith and listen to his music.
Over on his own site, Jeremy wrote what he refers to as a "Twitter-length novel" about his visit to the Daytrotter studios in Rock Island, Illinois: "It was cold," he writes. "The studio had a February chill and I sped through a slow song. The thought labeled 'redo' popped up, but I put it aside and embraced the cold coming through my fingers, accepting it as part of the sound, the document."
Jeremy will play the Electric Fetus benefit this Friday at First Ave, where he says he will debut some of his new material and play with a four-piece band for the very first time. "I have rock and roll tentatively scheduled," he joked on his Facebook page.
